Ben was in charge of feeding Mrs Mallard this morning, rain, yet more rain had us playing in the awning until after lunch when we headed to Blackburn to Flip Out. Safety briefing video watched, sock on we couldn’t believe our eyes at the size of the place. Ben and I take a second to pose before we explore.

Ben takes a flying leap to join Josh in a foam pit. To the left are the stunt trampolines, to the middle left is a football net and then basketball nets and beyond is a Ninja Wall Challenge. To the middle back are what I call ‘real’ trampolines and in front is a jump over and duck under joisting circle. Away to the far right is an area of solid trampolines. A laser light obstacle course. To our right a different challenge area and tucked in the right corner are a few foam pits. The place is Ginormous.....

The sign says “No Triples”, I’m pleased neither Josh nor Ben want to try a single somersault, happy to watch them jump, scamper and launch.

For our second hour we virtually had the place to ourselves.

Ready for the machine to begin, a chap presses the button and one minute they are jumping a padded beam, the next ducking under the opposite arm. The chap is cheeky though, the arm swings faster and faster and all of a sudden the chap reverses things. The boys did really well but eventually Josh was out as he had ducked and all too quickly the low arm came back to push him off his station. Such fun to watch.
